What to do
Fill a tray with pairs of rhyming objects, such as a shell and a bell. Hold up two objects at random. Ask the children to say the names of the objects aloud. Do they sound the same or do they sound different? Discuss the meaning of rhyme with the children.
Invite a child to choose an object and find one that rhymes with it. Then, give each child a copy of the activity sheet and ask them to find pairs of rhyming words.
